Gardaí in road safety appeal

Gardaí are appealing to all road users to exercise caution as the evenings get darker and children return to school.

Cyclists are being reminded to ensure their bikes are properly lit in the mornings and evenings, and to adhere to the same rules of the road as motorists, including obeying traffic lights and signals, one way streets, and using the left hand side of the road.

Motorists are asked to be cognisant of the fact that there are now more cyclists on the roads, and to allow space for cyclists on the road and to use their wing mirrors to check for cyclists approaching on the inside.

Parents are asked to give plenty of time for journeys to and from school, and to ensure that children are fully aware of the dangers of traffic and how to cross the road safely.
